Exterior lighted hand rail jealously!

Hi!
We just got back from the Tampa RV show...After seeing all the new Airstream's we really would like to install a lighted exterior handrail on our 2004 Airstream Classic.

Just wondering if anyone has installed one?

Thanks!
Mary

After repairing many on larger, high-end motor homes, any retrofit on an Airstream will require the removal of the inner skin to run the DC wires for the illumination or a hole in the skins to run the wires.

Also, many if the ones used in the motor homes have 3 screws that are externally accessible for attachment to the side wall, but they would not be that stable unless a side wall rib was beneath them. Sheet metal screws just aren't that strong in thin aluminum without a backing plate.

Just the reality of the situation....
